  • Description

    Description

    Located in Cape Kimberley, Daintree Rainforest, we are a 372 acre property with a goal of transforming an old organic banana farm back into lush rainforest, pushing for restoration focused on enhancing biodiversity, creating corridors for local fauna and a re-connection between primitive rainforest and some of the most diverse and productive mangrove ecosystems in the world. To do this, we will be planting 360,000 native trees by 2025.

    Currently, our team of dedicated workers and volunteers are collecting and germinating seeds locally for the nursery, with 12000 trees growing strong. We recently commenced planting these onto the prepared land in May, 2022. Generally, most of the work that keeps us busy is managing the trees which have already been planted, maintaining the land and ensuring we have a steady flow of seeds coming through the nursery. We have to be sure we will have enough trees to plant in the ground!

    If you don’t like getting your hands dirty, this won’t be the place for you. We strive to gain a deeper connection with the land here, and believe the best way to do this is to become immersed in the site and the soil we work on.

    Echange culturel et opportunités d'apprendre

    We provide a deeper educational understanding on nursery logistics, pest/weed control, permaculture practices, sustainable, spray-free farm management & many more skills related to farm life. In our spare time, we enjoy the natural spaces close by and immerse in the appreciation of the oldest rainforest in the world.

    Currently we are looking for a few long-term based volunteers (ideally 2+ months, minimum stay of 2 weeks) to help with the preparation requirements for planting on sits. This will involve helping in the nursery, whether germinating, transplanting, re-locating trays of plants, helping strengthen infrastructure, weed control, or any of the random tasks that you could find on the day-to-day running of a farm. Time will be spent exploring the local vicinity when seed collecting, another key area of focus. Our communal gardens with lush vegetables, fruit trees and delicious treats also need to be pruned, mulched and weeded. Fencing needs to be put in, some taken down, the hardening and nursery areas need to be expanded, plus lots more. t's also important to look after our oceans, with beach clean ups becoming a great opportunity to clear away rubbish, and also enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There's always something on the farm or surroundings that needs to be done, so, if you are pro-active, with a can-do attitude, then the opportunities and experiences you will have here will be unforgettable

    If you're specialised in carpentry, mechanics, content creation (social media management) or agriculture/nursery management then we are eager for your expertise on site. There's never only one way of doing things, and to have input from people with different backgrounds is vital to a community driven project.

    Hébergement

    Volunteers have the opportunity to stay at 3 different locations:

    Cape House (as shown in the profile images) requires a 25 hours per week commitment (5 hours per day x 5 days per week), with private bedroom, shared bathroom and shared living space (with other volunteers).

    Pole House, the second option, requires a 20 hours per week commitment. Another large house, but without some of the additional comforts found at Cape House, such as internet (although there is Optus phone signal).

    The final accommodation option is to stay down on the farm in your car, campervan or tent, where there are still facilities to wash, cook and charge your devices, requiring only 15 hours per week commitment.

    Please specify upon application on which space you would like to stay

    There are a plethora of outdoor activities to do here within the Daintree, whether going to the local beaches, exploring the nearby creeks or taking strenuous missions up to the top of mountains. It's an outdoor adventure land. If you'd prefer to enjoy cafe's and general amenities, we are only a 45 min drive from Mossman, and a 2 hour drive from Cairns. Having your own transport would be highly beneficial to make the most of exploring the area, however, the closest beach is only a 2km walk away and the views from the veranda are quite spectacular!
